OK, I admit....

Sunday, April 19, 2009

Ok ,I admit I have not lost an ounce in over 4 months. Why?! Because I have not been consistent in the effort....or lazy is a word that comes to mind.

I start every week with a renewed effort but what I realize is I am giving myself every excuse in the book. I am stressed, I am tired,or I am depressed because of......blah blah....heard it all before. I need to get a grip because I have so much to be thankful for. I am just fed up with what I am doing!!! Time to be serious and not be afraid to attain my goal.
To kick my self in the butt, friday I signed up for the Bolder Boulder. Terri ,my friend, runs like the wind...she did Pike's peak, is training for a marathon and the Bolder Boulder is a walk in the park for her. Only a 10 K, but having said that my dear friend is going to walk/run at my speed. In my defense I couldn't walk 1 mile a year ago and walk at least 3-6 miles every monday and 3-6 on the weekends. So I have made progress there.

I must also admit that although I have been drinking the water I have not been following the diet. I don't care for the Spark diet so have been following Weight watchers and have decided to start attending meetings again. I need someone to keep me honest because OBVIOUSLY I am not doing that myself and weight watchers has more flexibility. So onward and upward. My child is watching...she learns from what I do and we have been cooking together, writing menus for the week , shopping and she goes to WW with me. It has actually been fun.
So happiness is a choice; and life is made when you participate in it...not watch from the sidelines or be afraid of reaching my goal .

    I am in the same boat you are in. I have got to quit making excuses as to why I don't exercise and eat right. I to start off with great intentions and then, get sidetracked. I have two girls who deserve a mom who is healthy. I need to do this for myself, I have got to think that I am worth doing it for. thanks for the blog and it helps to know that there are others struggling too.

    Your blog inspired me. I have fallen into the same habits, and I don't have the excuses you do... I have a husband who's home and kids old enough to help. I'm guessing from the '62 that we are the same age born on 1962. I have to get the same attitude. I'm recovering from a hysterectomy right now, but I need to get back into exercising asap. I took time off... as I had a lot to do at work and home to get ready. But, it's too much time off for someone who doesn't like exercising.
    Thanks for the inspiring attitude and words.
